Bat tower in the Netherlands not torn down

Bat tower in Klarenbeek, the Netherlands

Today, regional broadcaster Omroep Gelderland reports about a tower in Klarenbeek village. Marten Brascamp built this tower in his garden in 2011, with permission of local authorities.

However, when it turned out the tower was for housing bats, authorities rescinded the permit, and ordered that the tower should be torn down.

A judge ruled in favour of Marten Brascamp.

Today, the Council of State affirmed that decision.

Good news for the many brown long-eared bats living in the tower.

This is a brown long-eared bat video from Sweden.
